This is the best ice cream place in our tiny state-no doubt. The soft serve is the creamiest, the cones, the freshest. There's always a line but it flies. This is a local treasure...treat it with the deserved reverence.

This place is about as retro as it comes in such a good way. From the crowded parking lot, to the walk up window, to the friendly, helpful, patient servers. I feel like a child again as we all hang out at the picnic tables...More

There aren't a lot of these left, but its fun when you find one. It's the classic walk up window service frosty freeze. They serve ice cream, milkshakes, soft serve, floats, etc etc. All the ice cream is Hershey's. Simple, no seating but outside, right...More

Frosty Freez serves only the BEST soft-serve real ice cream from Garelick Farms, and we offer 18 flavors of awesome hard ice cream from different vendors (Hershey's, Gifford's and Bliss Dairy, we picked our favorites!) We serve Only8 Frozen Yogurt, which is a non-fat, low-sugar treat that is safe for most diabetics and people with lactose intolerance, and we also carry sugar-free and dairy-free options. We're known for our fast, friendly service and reasonable prices, we keep the place clean as a whistle, and we care about our community. We work hard to make our shop a great place to take the whole family, or a date, or your friends, or just treat yourself!
